The Funniest Improvised Scenes in TV Shows and Movies
Eugene Mirman, Flight of the Conchords
Flight of the Conchords originally started out life as a comedy band from New Zealand, before developing into the hit comedy television show which we're all familiar with. The show originally aired in 2007 and the final series finished in 2009. I know, I can't believe its run was that short, either. Nevertheless, during that time the line "The sink works. It just comes out of a different place" became one of the funniest and best known lines from the entire show. However, what you probably didn't realize is that the line (which features in the 'Girlfriends' episode) was an improvisation. You never can tell which lines from film and television will become catchphrases, but this just goes to show that sometimes you don't even need a scriptwriter to come up with a memorable, iconic line!
